A Note On Last Week's Guest Stars

at . Comments
Jessica Stroup
An overwhelming number of you have inquired as to the identity of the guest actresses portraying the Amish girls in last week's amazing "Great Expectations."

There's no doubt that Jessica Stroup (Jilly Miller, right) and Rachel Boston (Rachel, below) both turned in terrific performances.

You may have recognized Boston, 24, as Beth Mason on American Dreams. She has also guest starred on The Closer and 7th Heaven, and has appeared in several movies. In 1999, she was crowned Miss Teen Tennessee!

Stroup has appeared in, among others, the films The Hills Have Eyes 2, School for Scoundrels, Southern Comfort, and Pray For Morning.

Hopefully we'll be seeing more from these lovely young ladies in the coming years. We're planning on revamping our outdated guest stars section in the near future, so it includes information like this about some of each week's terrific compelling guest performers.

As Ellen Pompeo pointed out the other night at the SAG Awards, they bring so much to the series week in and week out.

Jessica Stroup and Rachel Boston are very hot!!!


Don't worry Jaine. One of the spoiler writers for one of the online websites said that she or he had spoken directly with TR's publicist and that he isn't going anywhere. I really don't think you have to worry. I like Ellen and felt kind of sorry for her with her acceptance speech. It seemed like she got kind of shaken when she confused Kate Burton with Kate Walsh and then kind of blanked on what she intended to say. It didn't really matter though. The point was they were really happy to win and that came through.


Don't worry, Jaine. One of the spoiler writers on the internet, can't remember which one, said very adamantly that she or he had it straight from the Grey's production company that TR is not leaving. I am sure you have nothing to fear. I agree about Ellen. I really like her. I think she mixed up Kate Burton and Kate Walsh and that got her shaken up. I can't imagine having to talk in front of all those people especially people that she probably has admired most of her life.


Ellen was nervous but I liked her speech.


i personally think ellen pompeo sounded like a blabbering idiot in their acceptance speech.


both of these actress did an awesome job....they brought tears to my eyes....i wish there were more people in the world like the characters they played... Cradle to Grave.


Please do not let TR Knight leave the show. He addds a certain sweetness and reality to the show - he looks like a real person - not a model for GQ,
is an excellent actor, and enhances any scene he is in. One can only imagine what he went through when he had to announce to the world that he was gay before he was obviously ready to do so.
He castmates appear to support and admire him.
Please don't let him leave. It would be a travesty of justice if he paid the price (beyond what he has already paid emotionally) for someone elses' mis-steps.


Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
